Talk:orange peel

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, orange peel is a "mass noun", i.e. "uncountable". Thus the result of peeling several oranges is usually "orange peel", not *"orange peels". That said, I have found instances where the plural is used. Is this best dealt with by a usage note?--ARAJ 11:41, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

No, if you've found attestations as to when it can be countable, then we can make it a usually uncountable, but sometimes countable type of deal. Razorflame 21:49, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
